    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:11

    Y los hijos de Judá y de Israel serán congregados en uno, y levantarán para sí una cabeza, y subirán de la tierra; porque el día de Jezreel es grande.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hosea 1:11

    Verse 11. The
    children of Judah and the Children of Israel] After the return from Babylon, the distinction between Israel and Judah was entirely destroyed; and those of them that did return were all included under one denomination, Jews; and the one head may refer to ZerubbHebel their leader, and afterwards under Ezra and Nehemiah. In the more extensive view of the prophet the one Head may mean Jesus Crist, under whom the true Israel, Jews and Gentiles, shall be finally gathered together; so that there shall be one flock, and one Shepherd over that flock.

    They shall come up out of the land] Assyria and Chaldea in particular; but also from the various places of their dispersions in general.

    Great shall be the day of Jezreel.] He alludes to the meaning of the word, the seed of God. God who has dispersed-sown, them in different lands, shall gather them together; and that day of God's power shall be great and glorious. It was a wonderful seed time in the Divine justice; it shall then be a wonderful harvest in the Divine mercy. He sowed them among the nations in his wrath; he shall reap them and gather them in his bounty.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together , etc.] Not at the return from the Babylonish captivity; for, though some of the ten tribes might be mixed with the Jews when they went into captivity, and came out with them, and others might join them from the various nations where they had been dispersed; yet they did not gather together with them in a body, only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, those were the chief; of the children of Israel, but few, ( Ezra 1:5). Some refer this to the first times of the Gospel, when the Galileans were gathered to Christ by his ministry, who inhabited the countries where some of the tribes of Israel dwelt; and who might, at least some of them, descend from them: and when those in Jerusalem and in Judea, who also believed in Christ, united with them in their profession of him, and in affection to one another; or to the time of Christ’s death, by which the whole Israel of God, who were scattered abroad, were gathered together in one; and even Jews and Gentiles were made one body, and one new man in Christ, the partition wall being broken down: or to the times of the apostles, who were successful in the conversion and gathering of many of the Jewish nation, and also of the Samaritans; and of forming churches in Judea and Samaria under one head, in whom they agreed; and likewise of many others, both Jews and Israelites, in the various parts of the world, where they carried the Gospel; and who coalesced with the believing Gentiles in one church state, under Christ their head: though it seems best to interpret this of the latter day, when the children of Israel and Judah shall join together in seeking the Lord their God, and the true Messiah, and shall be turned, and gathered to him; when they shall be no more two kingdoms or two nations, but be one under the Messiah, who shall he their King and Prince; when all their animosities shall be laid aside, and they shall no more envy or vex one another; but shall meet together in the same church state, and worship the Lord with one shoulder and consent, being of one mind and sentiment in religious things, and when all Israel shall be saved, ( Jeremiah 1:4,5 Ezekiel 37:19-22) ( Isaiah 11:13 Zephaniah 3:9) and appoint themselves one head ; not Sennacherib, as Aben Ezra, very absurdly; nor Hezekiah, nor Josiah, as others; nor Elijah the prophet, as some in Kimchi; nor Zerubbabel, to which the Targum seems to incline, paraphrasing it, “one head of the house of David;” but better, as Jarchi, David their King; that is, the Messiah, as Kimchi and Ben Melech expressly interpret it; and so Abarbinel f25 , though he understands it of the Messiah the son of Joseph; and undoubtedly the same is meant by the one head, as David their King and Prince, ( Hosea 3:5 Ezekiel 37:24,25) even Christ, who is the Head of angels, yea, the Head of every man, but in a special and peculiar sense the head of the body, the church; he is the federal and representative Head of his people, both in eternity and in time; and in such sense a Head to them, as a king is head of his subjects, a husband of his wife, a father of his family, and a master of his servants; and also as a natural head is to its body, of the same nature with it; in union to it; lives the same life; is above it, and more excellent than it: a perfect Head Christ is, there being nothing wanting in him as such; he has his eyes set upon his people; his ears are open to their cries; he smells a sweet saviour of rest in their persons and services; he tastes and eats their pleasant fruits, and feels all their infirmities, troubles and afflictions; and has a tongue to speak a word in season for them: there are no vicious humours in this Head to affect the body; no deformity in it, and all fulness therein to supply its wants; he is an everliving and everlasting Head, and the one, and only one; there is no other, neither the pope of Rome, nor any other; nor will true Israelites acknowledge any other: and though this Head is of God the Father’s appointing, who has given him to be the Head; set him as King over Sion; raised him up to be a Prince and a Saviour; yet he is also of the saints’ choosing and appointing; they approve of him as such, embrace him, own him, and submit to him, as the Jews will at the last day, though their forefathers have rejected him: and they shall come up out of the land ; not of Israel, as Schmidt, who interprets this of the apostles going out from thence, and spreading the Gospel in the world; but out of each of the lands and countries where Israel and Judah have been dispersed, and return to their own land; (see Jeremiah 3:18 Ezekiel 34:13 37:21). So the Targum, “and they shall come up out of the land of their captivity:” or it may be understood, figuratively and spiritually, of their coming up out of their captivity to sin, Satan, the law, and the world, as well as out of their present temporal captivity: and out of the earth f26 , as it were, as it may be rendered; out of their earthly state, from the graves of sin, leaving their earthly affections, and becoming spiritual and heavenly minded; willing to quit all that is dear unto them, even the country in which they were born and long lived, to follow Christ their Head and King: for great shall be the day of Jezreel ; or, though great has been or is the day of Jezreel f27 ; though it has been a great and long day of trouble and affliction to them, signified by Jezreel; (see Hosea 1:4,5), yet all these good things promised shall surely be accomplished: indeed the day of Jezreel may be taken in a good sense, not for a time of dispersion and distress, but of great comfort, joy, and happiness; the word signifying, according to some, the seed of God, or the arm of God: and Jerom applies it to Christ, the seed of God; and the whole Gospel dispensation may be called his day, the day of salvation, the joyful day the Lord has made: or rather by Jezreel, the seed of God, are meant his spiritual offspring, the children of Judah and Israel; who shall now be gathered, by the arm of God, his powerful and efficacious grace, and that in large numbers, so that great will be their day; so the Targum paraphrases it, “for great will be the day of their gathering.”

    It respects the latter day glory, when will be the conversion of the Jews, and the bringing in of the fulness of the Gentiles; when there will be great peace and prosperity; great love and unity; great holiness and purity; great light and knowledge; great enjoyment of God, and of the presence of the Redeemer great glory upon the churches, and upon that a defence: in short, all the great and glorious things spoken of will now be completed; perfect deliverance from all afflictions and troubles; an entire destruction of all enemies; and a full enjoyment of the word and ordinances, in the purity of them, and large conversions everywhere.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Under a figure, is represented the shameful idolatry of the ten tribes (Hos. 1:1-7) The calling of the Gentiles, and the uniting Israel an Judah under the Messiah. (Hos. 1:8-11)

    Hos. 1:1-7 Israel was prosperous, yet then Hosea boldly tells them of their sins, and foretells their destruction. Men are not to be flattered in sinful ways because they prosper in the world; nor will it last long if they go on still in their trespasses. The prophet mus show Israel their sin; show it to be exceedingly hateful. Their idolatry is the sin they are here charged with. Giving that glory to any creature which is due to God alone, is an injury and affront to God; such as for a wife to take a stranger, is to her husband. The Lord, doubtless, had good reasons for giving such a command to the prophet; it would form an affecting picture of the Lord's unmerite goodness and unwearied patience, and of the perverseness an ingratitude of Israel. We should be broken and wearied with half tha perverseness from others, with which we try the patience and grieve the Spirit of our God. Let us also be ready to bear any cross the Lor appoints. The prophet must show the ruin of the people, in the name given to his children. He foretells the fall of the royal family in the name of his first child: call his name Jezreel, which signifie "dispersion." He foretells God's abandoning the nation in the name of the second child; Lo-ruhamah, "not beloved," or "not having obtaine mercy." God showed great mercy, but Israel abused his favours. Sin turns away the mercy of God, even from Israel, his own professin people. If pardoning mercy is denied, no other mercy can be expected Though some, through unbelief, are broken off, yet God will have church in this world till the end of time. Our salvation is owing to God's mercy, not to any merit of our own. That salvation is sure, of which he is the Author; and if he will work, none shall hinder.

    Hos. 1:8-11 The rejection of Israel for a time, is signified by the name of another child: call him Lo-ammi, "not my people." The Lor disowns all relation to them. We love him, because he first loved us but our being cast out of covenant, is owing to ourselves and ou folly. Mercy is remembered in the midst of wrath; the rejection, as it shall not be total, so it shall not be final. The same hand tha wounded, is stretched forth to heal. Very precious promises are her given concerning the Israel of God, and they may be of use to us now Some think that these promises will not have accomplishment in full till the general conversion of the Jews in the latter days. Also thi promise is applied to the gospel, and the bringing in both the Jews an Gentiles to it, by St. Paul, Rom. 9:25,26, and by St. Peter, I Pet 2:10. To believe in Christ, is to have him for our Head, and willingl to commit ourselves to his guidance and government. And let us pray for the coming of the glorious day, when there shall be one Lord throug all the earth __________________________________________________________________
